Abstract

Exergetic sustainability performances such as, exergy efficiency, waste exergy ratio, environmental effect factor and exergetic sustainability index of a HALE UAV were investigated parametrically. The UAV and its high by-pass, mixed flow turbofan engine was supposed just to be switched from kerosene to hydrogen fuel without any other modification.
